Users’ Feedback about KBasicSome people have sent emails, expressing how they have discovered KBasic. Here is a small part of them…
Juan M. Puertas I would like to develop dynamic web applications visually thanks to Webkit. Once achieved this, KBasic is going to be the language chosen by million users. ;-)
Will Jackson I am very happy to have installed KBasic on Linux Ubuntu - I had a little trouble with the Qt libraries, but now all is working - I want to learn QBasic and it works just fine! Thank you for your brilliant program and hard work.
Dr Dave You really do have a superior product already, because in addition to being cross-platform, you’ve not only kept the syntax compatible with two earlier, popular BASIC versions, but you’ve included OOP capabilites. Plus you have included a good visual designer. This is really important both for new users that don’t have much programming experience, as well as the VB users that are used to designing with forms.
Dipl.-Ing.(TH) Winfried Kaiser The whole thing looks very promising, and could really become the VB7 I would have expected: backward compatible, so that you can eventually convert your projects into the OO world.
Laurens Leicher This is splendid! That must have been a hell of a job to build from scratch the whole VB environment to your own VB environment. My respect for that. I still think that this will be a milestone in the Linux environment. Because lot of programs are written in this language, but enterprises are prisoned for that to Windows. And now they have an alternative. This will more and more open the Linux environment to the (home) workstation as a (better) alternative. My congratulations!
George ? […]Your BASIC seems so far to be my best option for continuing work on a 5000+ line dungeon game I wrote in QuickBasic.
Norbert Doerre What I like with KBasic is the really good technical standard of it’s interior functions. It shows a way out of the prison of M*’s strategy. This is the most important feature because nobody, no company and no authority can afford in future to become dependent from a concern like M*. So the idea to offer a compatibility to VB6 and at the same time to implement the compatibility to Linux is one step into the right direction.
Peter ? KBasic is insane - completely crazy. I love it. I am really impressed at what you have done […] KBasic, wow. A compiler and VM is a serious job. To add an IDE, and both “backward” support for VB6 and forward support for inheritance -and do it on multiple platforms is just so incredibly ambitious (hence my insane and crazy comment). I’m just blown away that you have done so much… Keep up the good work! Your energy is obvious on your site, and the product and docs. I’m sure my comments aren’t new ideas to you. Because what you have achieved is so impressive.
Shannon Matteson You have me really excited over KBasic. Every time I see a new preview it gets me to thinking about how this will impact not only me as a developer, but the entire Linux community. This is one of the most needed things for Linux and yet nobody else is working on it the way it needs to be done. With KBasic, from what I am seeing, you’ll be swelling the ranks of people who can consider Linux for their OS quite considerably. There are a lot of businesses that won’t/can’t come over because of VB. You, my good man, stand to make a lot of money while doing this service to the linux community. Allow me to thank you for your vision, time, effort, and reasonable thinking. The pricing you have chosen shows that you understand something others never will. Between creating a product that is truly useful and truly needed, and offering it for such a reasonable price, you bring us to stand on the brink of a new world of potentials for Linux. Thank you. I look forward to owning a copy of the KBasic Professional when it comes out. Keep up the great work!
